Extraction and Socket Grafting

Extraction and Socket Grafting

When a tooth is removed, the ridge loses shape and volume. If implants are being considered, socket grafting is done to prevent the loss of dimension of the ridge. Many times, an immediate implant can be placed in the socket. However, if an implant is not feasible, socket grafting will preserve the contours so that an implant can be placed later. Our office uses atraumatic extraction techniques that preserve the bone so that your future implant will have a solid foundation.

Step 1: The tooth is extracted

Step 2: There is a bone defect present

Step 3: Bone grafting is placed into the socket

Step 4: A membrane is used to cover the graft material

Step 5: The area is sutured and allowed to heal for 3-6 months



Our office has specialized equipment, facilities, and staff to properly address your periodontal and implant needs in a warm and caring environment. We are committed to providing you with the highest quality of care.
